* Happens to Fry in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' when his nose gets stolen by alien poachers. Judging by a new report, alien abduction is a perfectly normal occurrence in 31st century life.

* Played with and averted in ''{{Series/House}}''. A child patient is being treated due to having beliefs that he was abducted by aliens. Turns out that it was false, but not because the kid was making stuff up: [[spoiler: He actually did believe it due to the "abduction memories" being a side-effect of his birth. He was originally supposed to have a twin brother who he absorbed in the womb.]]

Unlike Loki, they have partially succeeded and have outlived their Ida Galaxy cousins. However, thanks to the Wraith, they're stuck on their poisonous planet and are unable to leave the galaxy.
